Lords of Midnite "Drown In Ur Love"
A new 12" is on the way via DJ Haus' unstoppable Unknown to the Unknown label, a three-track record which was crafted by a "mystery producer" by the name of Lords of Midnite. (All we can really say is that the artist has worked with UTTU before, and is known for having a predilection for multiple monikers and sci-fi narratives.) Called Drown In Ur Love, the forthcoming release is said to be the rediscovered transmissions of a now-extinct sect of humanoid aliens, whose lost rhythms "some consider the key to existence." Heady stuff indeed. A-side "Drown In Ur Love" is our first taste of that esoteric offering, and mixes cosmic synth work and disembodied vocal samples with a pulsating deep-house beat that eventually gives way to rolling breaks, expertly playing off the track's dense textures. Lords of Midnite's EP is set to drop on July 15, but before then, previews of its three tracks and a video for the title cut can be found after the jump.
